IRT Antoine de Saint Exupéry is a world class excellence centre in Aeronautics, Space and Embedded Systems. This Institute of Technology combines resources from public and private partners to lead R&T activities in three strategic domains: High Performance Multifunctional Materials, More Electrical Aircraft and Embedded Systems. Applications targeted include aeronautics, space and embedded systems. Its world class expertise and technology platforms, as well as its collaborative environment boost the maturation and transfer of breakthrough technologies (TRL 4-6) to its industrial partners. Launched between 2012 and 2013, the 8 IRTs benefits from the French government Program “Investissement d’Avenir” (Investments for the Future Program) to boost high value competitive technological sectors.
Airbus produces some of the most modern aircraft on the market, with a reputably high standard of product support. The company’s vision is to help shape the future of air transportation and drive sustainable growth worldwide.. This motivation, associated with an extensive expertise, propels Airbus to continue investing efforts in research and technology, particularly related to the field of advanced avionics systems and software. The development of techniques, methods, and tools associated with critical embedded systems and software is a key enabler, particularly within a highly-competitive global market context. Airbus is therefore involved in key European and national initiatives such as ITEA, Artemis/EICOSE, Aerospace Valley, and in a multiple of collaborative projects designed to steadfastly promote and develop new software architecture and techniques, modelling approaches, and integrated tools for avionics system innovation. Based in Toulouse, Airbus is a global leader in the aerospace and defense industries, employing over 55,000 people worldwide, with fully-owned subsidiaries in the United States, China, Japan, India Middle East, and spare part centers in Hamburg, Frankfurt, Washington, Beijing, Dubaï and Singapore. Airbus also has training centers in Toulouse, Miami, Hamburg, Bangalore and Beijing, an engineering center in Russia, and over 150 field service offices around the world. Airbus also relies on solid global industrial partnerships and collaborations with major companies and on a network of some 7,700 suppliers worldwide.
Continental develops intelligent technologies for transporting people and their goods. As a reliable partner, the international automotive supplier, tire manufacturer, and industrial partner provides sustainable, safe, comfortable, individual, and affordable solutions. In 2014, the corporation generated sales of approximately €34.5 billion with its five divisions, Chassis & Safety, Interior, Powertrain, Tires, and ContiTech. Continental currently employs approximately 208,000 people in 53 countries. In France, Continental is among the Top 20 of the most innovative companies and has therefore been the automotive preferred supplier over the last 35 years in this country.

With its local plants based in dynamic areas, the Automotive Group has set up partnerships with local industrial key players in France while creating synergies with the aeronautics industry. In France, Continental is a worldwide competence center for « High Tech for Best Value » innovations. The company offers “made in France” innovative, integrated and optimized systems which are combining high technology with best cost to its customers and to other low cost vehicle car manufacturers. The close cooperation between local R&D teams and local plants contributes to a high level of performance and quality which have been awarded several times.
Founded in 1961, the Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales (CNES) is the government agency responsible for shaping and implementing France’s space policy in Europe. Its task is to invent the space systems of the future, bring space technologies to maturity and guarantee France’s independent access to space. CNES is a pivotal player in Europe’s space programme, and a major source of initiatives and proposals that aim to maintain France and Europe’s competitive edge. It conceives and executes space programmes with its partners in the scientific community and industry, and is closely involved in many international cooperation programmes—the key to any far-reaching space policy. The agency’s more-than 2,400-strong workforce constitutes an exceptional pool of talent, with some 1,800 engineers and executives, 35% of whom are women. Through its ability to innovate and its forward-looking vision, CNES is helping to foster new technologies that will benefit society as a whole, focusing on: •Ariane •Sciences •Observation •Telecommunications •Defence
